Newsies Live Pt. 2

(photos swiped from the Instagram accounts of the cast IDK where they originally came from)

To everybody asking if we’ll get Newsies Live on DVD/digital release....

Listen, us fansies are a damn mighty group.

We took a movie that flopped at the box office, and badgered Disney until they gave us a stage version at Paper Mill.

We took a show that was never supposed to hit Broadway, and convinced Disney to put it on Broadway as a limited run.

We took a show that was supposed to have a limited run and got it to run over 1,000 performances, and a tour.

And then with only weeks left to go before the end of the tour, our love for this beautiful, life-changing show convinced the folks at Disney Theatricals to bring together the casts of the Broadway and tour productions together for a one night only show that was beautifully filmed and put together for an ultimate Newsies experience, and then put it in movie theaters.

We did that, guys. Our deep love for our dancing paper boys DID ALL THAT.

So I have a feeling that if we badger the folks at Disney Theatricals enough, they will most definitely distribute the pro-shot digitally or on DVD in some form. 

So get cracking, folks. FANSIES UNITED!!!!

Highlights of Newsies Live

- EVERYTHING???!!!!?!!?!??!!

- every time an actor’s eyes (i noticed this the most with jeremy, kara, ben f. and andrew) shimmered with unshed tears during moments when you knew they weren’t supposed to be crying but they were getting super emotional anyways

- ben tyler cook killing it as race 👌👌👌💯👌👌👀👀

- hearing the audience get super hyped during “seize the day” and “king of new york”

- every single jackcrutchie moment including but not limited to: excessive side hugs, shoulder bumps, heart eyes, and jack tying crutchie’s shoe (AND KISSING IT AFTERWARDS I’M STILL NOT OVER IT)

- “A LETTER FROM THE REFUGE” 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 SERIOUSLY END ME

- just andrew keegan-bolger as crutchie in general 💕😍💕😍💕

- ben fankhauser’s vibrato and beautiful face

- queen kara slaying every damn second

- JEREMY. FREAKING. JORDAN.

- but for real y'all EVERYTHING ABOUT IT WAS BEAUTIFUL AND EMOTIONAL AND MAGICAL AND I CAN’T WAIT TILL IT’S ON NETFLIX SO I CAN WATCH IT EVERY DAY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE

Sad Newsies is over (again) so I made my own papes!

So I saw Newsies twice (might have skipped class to watch it the second time whoops) and here are some of my favorite parts:

- Seeing Broadway newsies and toursies all performing together

- The projections of the headlines/Jack’s drawing of Katherine

- Hearing “Letter from the Refuge” in hd

- Seeing newsies spit in hd

- Jeremy Jordan’s raw emotion while singing Santa Fe

- Kara’s bro voice when she says “for sure”

- The camera angles esp during the fight scene

- And when it zooms in on Davey after Jack betrays him and the guys and then it pans back to Jack who just looks so helpless

- The world’s yer erster!

- Les making the deal w/ Jack

- Les’s reaction to Medda’s theatre

- How excited Les got when Katherine said “let’s get drunk!” in King of NY

- Just everything about Les he’s perfect

- GO AND LOOK IT UP THE POOoOooOoR GUUuyYYY’S HEAD IS SPINNING

- How Davey says “… that’s it??” after Katherine first taps in King of NY

- The face Jack makes after shaking Roosevelt’s hand

- The audience losing their minds during the key change in Once and For All when the towers move forward and also during Brooklyn’s Here

- The audience cracking up at “why do old people talk so much?” “to prove they’re still alove”

- When Hannah secretly applauds Jack for the strike in Pulitzer’s office

- When the live audience throws papes at the stage during curtain call

- Jeremy attempting to do a dance move and almost falling during curtain call

- The girl next to me sadly whispering “oh Crutchie” after he sings “watch me stand, watch me run” during the Prologue

- The same girl during credits: “Tommy Braco?? Tommy BRACO?!?” and “Spot Conlan?! Spot CONLAN?!?” “WHY CAN’T THEY BOTH BE SPELLED RIGHT AT THE SAME TIME?!”

- Basically I loved everything 

Dislikes:

- It’s not in theaters anymore and it’s not available for purchase (yet, hopefully it will be soon)

- So little screen time for Spot Conlon and Kid Blink, aka the sweet cinnamon roll that is Andy Richardson 

- I basically cried for the whole 2 and a half hours
